						Dissington. Oct. 11. 1819

My dear Mother,

      As I find that Hardy has taken up the case of the workhouse that Horsington pulled down at Wybsey, I should be very glad to see his letter to you upon the subject as well as Mr. Wilson’s. I believe that is the name of Miss <Currer’s> relation – 

	Will you enclose them to me as soon as you have time, for I <fear H.>, of whose discretion I have a very low opinion, has led you into a scrape – I will write to you again as soon as I have seen them 

	It will be quite soon enough to think about an architect when the best mode of keeping out the water is ascertained – I have not the least idea that it will be necessary to pull down the dam – This I suppose you have heard from Hunter, as well as the <story> about Mr. <Cupwell’s/ Cupack’s> having no intentions of purchasing the estate – 

	The buck & <Pines> arrived safe and were very good in spite of the maltreatment the venison experienced from Mrs. Thompson’s cook – The Gowns shall be brought to Bretton, you may rely upon it not being my intention to increase my rental by the purchase of Bywell; the necessary arrangements shall be made <when> the time arrives of receiving the rents –

	I am glad that you intend speaking to Mr. Bird about <West Allen Chapel> - He will be able to explain to you the <nat…> In our wishing to purchase the ancient <site>

	I hope to hear of your safe arrival soon at Bretton – 

      With best love to my Father & Sisters

      I am my dear Mother Your aff[ectiona]te Mother [sic]

      TW Beaumont
